Chinaplas 2013: D-S unveils compact medical tubing line

US converting and extrusion machinery company Davis-Standard had a special unveiling of its medical tubing line at Chinaplas. The line is designed to support China’s developing medical markets and impending healthcare initiatives. Said CEO Bob Preston, “We have sold quite a few machines in China, to companies like Baxter Healthcare. The Chinese healthcare sector is upgrading and processors are buying more high tech lines now.” He also explained that the line is designed to produce IV drips. “We have a good market presence in the US for this type of products.”

The medical tubing line is compact in design and offers a smaller footprint for clean rooms. It also features a language-specific control system. The line’s co-extruders are engineered to provide processing versatility and value, enabling processors to use materials ranging from polypropylene (PP) to fluorinated ethylene polypropylene (FEP) with a simple feedscrew change, says the firm. It also includes a melt pump for processing thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPUs) and nylons.

“After the show, the line will be installed at Davis-Standard’s Suzhou facility, providing customers regional research and development access to medical tubing equipment,” added Preston.
